Striking mountain contemporary home in Aspen with opulent features

traditional-exterior

At 15,000 square feet, this mountain contemporary home in Aspen, Colorado’s exclusive Star Mesa enclave is warm and approachable from the start. Designed by Charles Cunniffe Architects, the home embraces and welcomes you inside with the stone steps widen as you approach. Douglas Fir Beams and dry stacked Telluride Stone, traverse the exterior and the interior of the home, with antique re-sawn White Oak flooring seen throughout.

Two great rooms allow guests to spread out on the main floor. In lieu of the now traditional television above the fireplace, the Owners found “Bert,” a stuffed Highland Goat. With the addition of the second, more intimate great room, they found his brother “Ernie”. The tight-knit family loved the idea of keeping the brothers together.
